I used several of the small Bazzill brads to create the look of raindrops falling from the cloud embellishments. And I also used some of the copper-toned brads from The Paper Studio in the centers of the circles that I fussy cut from some Jillibean Soup papers. I really had a lot of fun designing this page and actually submitted it to one of the Scrapbook Trends calls, but never got a response...but oh well, I still ended up with a fabulous page that I absolutely love!! :)
To create the umbrella for this page, I used my Expression to cut an SVG file and then traced it on a piece of white paper. Then I drew off the umbrella sections, cut each one and then re-traced it onto the Jillibean patterned paper. I cut out each of the sections and then matched them in place on my SVG cut piece. I added the dark brown stitching to give each of the sections a little more definition and then dressed it up with the pom pom trim, baker's twine, and button at the top.
For the word "Summer" in my title, I also cut the word on my Expression. Then I placed the negative of the word on my background paper and used orange acrylic paint on bubble wrap to stamp in the word. Then I went back and outlined each letter with the marker side of my brown Zig pen.
So don't miss out on this fun challenge!! You can win an awesome prize from our Sponsor this week!!
